The International Thespian Society has been honoring excellence in the work of theatre students since 1929. Thespian troupes serve students in grades nine through twelve. There are at present active ITS troupes in more than 3,900 high schools and middle schools, mostly in the United States and Canada. The Society recently inducted its two millionth Thespian.
Actors and actresses are called thespians in honor of Thespis, a Greek playwright and performer. Thespian with an uppercase “T” refers to a member of the International Thespian Society, the world’s largest honor society for theatre students. The designation “Thespian” includes student members who excel in technical and production fields as well as performance in their high school theatre.
How do schools benefit from International Thespian Society affiliation?
An ITS troupe helps maximize the effectiveness of its school’s theatre program. It establishes a tiered recognition system that recognizes and motivates student achievement. These achievements and activities provide exceptional promotional and fundraising opportunities. In addition ITS affiliation provides educational programming and networking activities for students and their directors at the regional and national level.
How do students qualify for membership?
Students qualify by earning points for their work in the theatre arts. ITS provides a point system guide for your use. The points listed are the suggested maximum for excellent work.
DRAMA CLUB OFFICERS
Evan is a senior at Highlands and the president of the drama club! He was first convinced to start theatre in 8th grade, most notably playing the title role in "Sweeney Todd" and Moose in "Crazy For You". He loves singing, scuba diving, and all things chocolate!! Have a great day!
Jack is a junior and currently Vice President of the HHS drama club. He is also a cappies critic and probably spends too much time time doing theatre. Jack also loves listening to bad emo music and his parents. He is so excited for this new opportunity and for all the awesome events the drama club will have this year!
AJ is a junior at Highlands High School and is greatly excited about this new opportunity. She can’t wait to meet new people, reunite with old ones, and form even stronger bonds. She is full of gratitude for being elected to this position and is looking forward to providing spaces where people can feel a sense of belonging. AJ is also involved in numerous other clubs, including robotics (go bluegrease crew!), and mock trial. In her free time, she enjoys baking, hiking, playing with her dog, and watching endless amounts of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She hopes that each and everyone reading this has a blessed day
Rowan is a senior at HHS and serves as Treasurer for the Drama Club. He's been doing theatre since 8th grade (dang) both onstage and backstage. He loves Project Makeover and Diet Coke, and also the drama club! If you have any treasury/drama club questions feel free to reach out! #powerofthepurse #federalist13
Treiston is the social media officer for the HHS Drama Club. He is a senior, and this is his fourth year in the Drama Club. He is very passionate about Lady Gaga and Mortal Kombat, often known as his “two personality traits.” An unpopular opinion Treiston has is he absolutely hates pumpkin pie. He has had roles in HHS’s Production of ‘The Kentucky Cycle,’ as Abe Steinman. #Dvorah4MK2 #ILoveRowan #BuffNitara
